A new Thai spot has opened in the Inner Sunset. Located at 534 Irving St. (between 6th & 7th avenues), the new arrival is called Bussaba, Thai for "flower."
Located in the former Baan Thai House, which closed last month, the new spot offers traditional Thai-style cooking with hints of Californian sensibilities.
To start your meal, expect to see appetizers such as avocado mango spring rolls, Thai-style samosas with ground chicken and diced potato, and steamed dumplings with chicken, shrimp and shiitake mushrooms.
Switching over to entrées, look for signature dishes like the Lover's Prawns with cashew nuts, whole dried chili peppers and crispy shallots; deep-fried catfish filet in a lemongrass and chili sauce; and grilled flank steak with fresh basil, string beans and white onion.
There are also soups, salads, fried rice and noodle dishes available, too, along with a variety of Thai-style curry dishes.
Bussaba also serves lunch specials and offers catering and private party services. (Take a look at the full menu here.)
With a five-star rating out of two Yelp reviews, Bussaba has already made a good impression.
Greg C., among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on February 7th, said the new spot is "an even better version of what I had already thought was some of the best Thai food in SF, and there are a lot of good options here."
Bussaba is open weekdays from 11am–3pm, and daily from 4:30pm–10pm.
